St Patrick’s Day, the Fighting Irish and Cricket!

Coming from St Patrick’s School and Notre Dame (an Irish school) , i never quite understood the true meaning behind the university mascot “the fighting Irish” until I watched Ireland tie with Zimbabwe, and now see them well on the way to beating Pakistan at the World Cup Cricket Tournament being held in the West Indies. The luck of the Irish seems to be working extremely well on St Patrick’s day much to the dismay of the many Pakistani cricket fans.

The Irish, no matter how tough the situation, always seem willing to fight back till the last ball, and seem to end up turning things around in their favour.

For the Pakistanis if we don’t win, its ok! We can always support Bangladesh, who beat India in a brilliant match. Maybe the Irish luck is also supporting this team:)

It would be a brilliant cricket upset to see Bangladesh and Ireland make their way to the super 8.. but that is something that only time will tell.

Signing off….

Happy St Patrick’s Day
